I have been a life long resident of Wayne County, son of Elba G. and Olive M. Ferguson, married to Brenda (Thacker) Ferguson for the past thirty-five years, three lovely children, Melissa Ferguson, Jennifer Atkins and David Elba Ferguson and three precious grandchildren, Kameron, Kyler and Jaci Atkins.
I am a civic minded person. Helped in the establishment of the East Lynn Volunteer
Fire Department. I have been involved in Little League Baseball and Basketball
Programs for several years. I strongly believe in being involved in our children's
lives from the time they're young children until they are young adults, teaching
them right from wrong and keeping their time occupied. I believe that encouragement
and stability should begin at a young age.
